Peace, love, and understanding are great, but what's the point if you can't wake up in a pool of your own sputum? Placate your inner dirty hippie while still tearing it up, with gear from Gold Saturn.
Miami-based GS uses thin, supple Peruvian Pima cotton for relatively slim-cut wide- and v-neck tees that boldly advocate a heightened awareness of both global issues and that candy cat who won't shut up, no matter how plaintively you sing to it. Just-released vice includes "Party Overdose" (a sunglassed skull formed by a mess of pills); "Saturn Golds", in which a polka-dotted hand reaches to snatch a totally bummed cigarette from amongst his smiling compatriots; and the Partridge Family-repping "C'mon Get Happy", whose buzzed, tongue-lolling smiley face is clearly in no shape for a celebrity boxing match. Less overt is "Peace Hand Abstract", with a huge hand in a peace gesture, made of psychedelically oddball shapes and hues; and the kinetically colored "Love", with letters formed by a Noah's Ark of elephants, 'shrooms, dinosaurs, turtles, hippie symbols, and phrases like "flower power" and "make love not war" (though like they say at the end of Trading Places, "why not have both?").
Older designs -- still available on the website -- are just as whimsically ballsy, from "Mushroom Crew" (a cute little team of hallucinogenic buddies) to "Prescription for Peace", with its peace symbol made of pills -- because when choking down pills leaves you lying in a puddle of sputum, all peace means is people leaving you the hell alone.
